Quote of the day:

Observing and photographing nature makes me realize who is truly in control, and believe me, it's not us humans.

Bubblegum paradise? I'm not usually a fan of these artificial colours, but this one is great!

Trees seem to be covered with snow. It's incredible how unusual hints can bring, add and finally change the whole spirit of a place.

The artifice works because it's just this side of plausible. I was taken in, and startled, for a few seconds...

How did you take an infra-red picture ? Did you remodel your Kiss X?

@Hiro: Thx for the comments Hiro! Actually I'm just using a Hoya R72 filter. It's a little more inconvient than a conversion but it can still get quite good results.

Fred from Manila, Philippines

Perfect treatment on the colors. I don't know why but it just seems so right for the place. It kind'ov gives that un-Earthly feel to it, and that kind'ov gives a very surreal feeling to the shot. Good job!
